“We’ve been made aware of a Facebook thread saying that you need to re-register to vote in June’s EU Referendum and we’re keen to get the word out there that this is not the case! Anyone who is already registered to vote next week will also be registered to vote at the EU Referendum, and eligible electors will be able to cast their vote.”
